We aim to pack and ship orders within three working days of your order being placed - our goal is to get them to you as soon as possible, so you can start sewing. (Because if you're anything like us, you've probably already chosen your fabric and are eager to get started!)

Let's face it, shipping costs aren't fun. They're especially not fun when dealing with international rates. That's why Sew Indie NZ exists - to take away that pain for New Zealand and Australian sewists!

We like to keep things easy here, so there are only two or three shipping rates for each country.

Shipping rates within New Zealand

  • $4.55 for tracked courier (excluding rural addresses)
  • $6.50 for rural delivery (tracked, via Pass the Parcel, where possible)
  • Free! for orders of $100 or more

Orders of patterns within New Zealand are sent using Pass the Parcel - tracked, and couriered straight to your door. Orders going to rural addresses where Pass the Parcel doesn't service are sent via NZ Post.

Important note: if your items are sent via courier, they can't be shipped to PO Box addresses. If you have a PO Box we recommend you get your order sent to a friend or family member instead.

Shipping rates to Australia

  • $13 for 1-2 patterns
  • $18 for orders of 3 or more patterns

All orders to Australia are sent via (untracked) airmail with NZ Post.
